Tom Thibodeau met with Jimmy Butler to try and convince him to join the team in preseason, but Butler remains resolute in his trade request.
It was worth a shot. With Butler playing hardball and Wolves ownership pushing for a quick resolution to this saga, Thibs had almost no chance of mending the relationship here. If Butler's opinion can't be changed then it's only a matter of time until a trade goes down.
